    Description

    1947 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Signed Photograph with Jackie Robinson. From a purely sociological standpoint, the presented photo represents one of the most significant artifacts offered within this Signature Auction. Sticking out like a brave sore thumb in the back row of this oversized (12x20") team photo is the legendary Jackie Robinson, whose appearance in a Major League uniform represented an essential link in the chain from Frederick Douglass to Martin Luther King, Jr. One could almost miss the much lighter-skinned Dan Bankhead in the center row, third from left, who served as the Majors' first black pitcher upon his August 26, 1947 debut. Other notable figures of the National League Championship squad include Reese, Vaughan, Branca, Lavagetto, Gionfriddo, Reiser, Hodges, Furillo and more. Signature quality averages an impressive 7/10, and any faults to the photo itself are confined to the outer edges, well clear of the players and their signatures. A simple framing job extends the dimensions to 18x22". Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
